movement has ever been a hard right nation. the republican party is tilted right and i think if romney beats obama then it will be because he won a lot of dependent -- independent voters who move from party to party and election to election. the tea party movement is not here to stay but it at least entered the bloodstream. despite the voting behavior of congress. you see for example the ryan budget and both in 2011 in 2012 when it came up for a boat, all of these republicans who previously voted against it, now vote for it. if they failed them before they will be primary by someone who gets to the right and in fact one of people i read about in the book is a moderate republican named emerson from missouri. she voted against a couple of things and the voting behavior was not right-wing. so that sort of behavior strikes fears in the hearts of a lot of legislators. >> infective governor romney loses the response from the tea party will be i told you so.

of it, having president obama back in washington today, and having congress still out, is not the right message to end. people right now feel that the republicans are the party of no, that they are the ones causing this, they are going to get blamed. the fact of the matter is, is that they are doing the fiscal responsible thing here and that's where they can hang their hat. is that they have to hold on for deficit spending, and they still have the debt ceiling to hold in their back pocket if they need to. >> so what would, if you had been advising boehner, what would you advise him to say yes to? >> well, you know, he has to push the president to get more spending cuts. >> well, he tried that. he tried that. the president's in the cat bird seat, though. the president can say no and the republicans still get blamed. >> and then he came up with this plan "b" is really where things went off the rail. because it just looked like a mess publicly. >> all right. keith, what -- i mean, i know that it's not your party, but what would you advise the republicans to do, if anything in the next two
. >> right. >> your party's nominee last year ran against obama -- or in this campaign ran against obama for cutting medicare. what are the specific entitlement savings that you guys want to enact? because that's your ask of obama. he's told you what taxes he wants to raise. >> i've got a whole list of them. i mean, certainly starting with chain cpi, but the age, the copay, means testing. >> he's agreed to that. >> betting on competitive situation in between medicare manage and deeper service without any cap i mean it adds up to about a trillion dollars. and when you have a situation where americans are paying one-third of the cost of medicare, i don't think people realize that, but literally people are paying one-third of the cost of medicare, we have 20 million more americans coming on medicare over the next decade, i mean it's a time bomb. >> i agree with you it's a time bomb. but remember that the -- the standing document for republican boldness is the ryan budget. you get credit for that. he did not have ten-year savings on medicare and social security. >> and i do. i think we obvio
republicans have tilted right and if romney beats obama, it will be because he's one independent voters who move from party to party, election to election. to me the best evidence the tea party movement is not here to stay, that at least entered the bloodstream is that the voting behavior of congressman. for example, the ryan budget, those in 2011 and 2012 when i came up for a vote, republicans who previously voted now go for it. the reason is that they failed to fail to vote for accountability primary by someone who will get to the right. one of the people i write about is a moderate republican in missouri and she voted against a couple of things, her voting behavior is not sufficiently raping i read eric's and who wrote something sane hate tea party, here's a bunch of primary. that behavior strikes into the heart of legislators. >> if governor romney loses, the response will be we told you so. >> ask him exactly. and that the moderates are ready. >> what do you see coming down the line considering the judicial appointment crisis? >> i assumed the idea that there's a lot of unfilled vacanc
ways. >> but on the details that aren't so specific. i think you get enough of those details right that people can buy into the show. barack obama is not watching the show because it's a brilliant portrayal of the c.i.a. it gets enough of the details what it feels like to be in those situations. i have no idea why i like the show -- >> i think it's less about the details. michael described it as it's not a pa lem i can and i think audiences smell propaganda but if you can introduce the complexity of what they do. "24" was not about a good choice and bad choice but the better of two bad choices. if there was a formula of "24" that would have been it. and i think these people saw and president obama sees as well there is something about the preventation of the complexity of some of the things that people who are charged with these jobs have to deal with. writing it and imagining it makes me glad it's not my job just imagining how tough some of these decisions must be makes you grateful. >> the verse that we show in frost nixon "the queen" and that is how much responsibility you take

points. nasdaq up 2% right now. it's been strong all day. now at 3,020. and the s&p up 1.5%. >> look at those stocks go. president obama saying a fiscal cliff agreement is quote, in sight. mitch mcconnell moments ago saying quote, we are very, very close. >> to d.c. and john harwood. he and eamon have been monitoring all day. why are we close but not there yet? what's left, john? >> what's left is the agreement between the two parties on delaying those automatic across the board defense and domestic budget cuts which nobody wants. they deliberately set up so they wouldn't take place. democrats want to defer those for a year. republicans say we're only going to put them off to the extent you can find budget cuts that match the amount that the sequester would have been. now, the republicans are offering two or three months, 60 or 90 days and suggesting cuts. but democrats have not agreed to that. which is why the deal has been held up. even though the main portions of the tax element have fallen into place. and i'll recap what those are. a higher clinton era top rate of 39.6% for indiv
time. all of these black people crazy about obama, you had better think twice. thank you. guest: you were right that houses were overpriced in california, but they were overpriced before the bubble. houses in north carolina might cost you $600,000 before the bubble, $1.5 million at the height of the bubble, and now down to $400,000 -- four times as expensive as they would begin south carolina, which does not have land use restrictions. host: denver, colorado, ron. republican women. -- republican. caller: good morning. it seems like the community reinvestment act that was passed in 1975 more or less laid the foundation for the housing bubble as that was the beginning of the sub-prime. that evolves and was expanded upon. business took advantage of it. because of that we get the ball. the -- bubble. the cra is still on the books, and sub-prime loans are still being made. i was wondering, do you think a major part of the foundation was the community reinvestment act and ended should be eliminated? he called the community reinvestment act, i do not think it had as big or roll was people l
more questions. we'll come right here. >> thank you for coming, mr. speaker. i really was looking forward to you debating barack obama. that would have -- [cheers and applause] been amazing. one of the things that was really noticeable and palpable in the last year of the presidential debates and the candidates was the lack of media objectivity. and as a media person, what do you suggest for this next wave of breitbarts and television and bloggers in order to combat and, basically, silence this mainstream or lame stream media that we have today? >> well -- [applause] and if you go back and look at the debates, i did a fair amount of policing. [laughter] but my first, my first question as republicans look at this, and i've just started at gingrich productions what'll be a six month project of reviewing and trying to learn the lessons at a much deeper level than you're going to get from the current wave of analysts. because i think when you lose five out of six presidential elections in popular vote remembering that bush got a minority of the vote in 2000 and we, you underperform in
greenhaus. let me say, you're hilarious and i'm going to miss you. jonathan tweeted, obama has utterly caved on taxes and inviting future hostage tactics by the gop. does that sound right to you? >> no. in the first place, he has insisted on raising taxes, letting taxes go up, is what we're doing, for people above a certain income level. he does not control the house of representatives. part of this issue, you know, people forget, the american people are the ones who set this stage. they voted for one set of people in 2008, then they changed their minds. at least those who voted, and voted for a different set of people in 2010. we have an unusual constitution. in america you're governed by the results of the last three elections, not just the last election in most other democracies. that's why you have this deadlock. i do believe the 2012 election moved us in this direction. so no, i don't think the president's caved totally. he's made some reasonable compromises with reality. the point that he's inviting, hesitating, is just wholly inaccurate. he doesn't have to invite hostage taking. the n
